UN Official John Wilmoth, director of the Population Division said: Managing urban growth to insure that it is sustainable has become one of the most important development challenges of the current century.
Many countries will face difficulties while taking steps to transform rural areas into Urban areas. Countries might get difficulties in handling: housing, transportation, energy systems and other infrastructure, as well as for employment and basic services such as education and healthcare. Highly efficient policies are needed to improve the lives of both urban and rural dwellers.
Overall, urbanization can be seen as positive, Wilmoth said.
